In the 1500s, illuminator Joris Hoefnagel rendered flowers and plants with a botanical precision unmatched in his day. It’s tempting to imagine each of Hoefnagel’s natural wonders growing in the gardens cultivated at the imperial court of Rudolf II, his patron. Pages from Mira Calligraphiae Monumenta, one of the Getty’s most precious (and, at 6 9/16 inches high, tiniest) manuscripts: Damselfly; French rose, pink, semidouble; chestnut, spider.
